Chase Olsen, RE/MAX First Realty

CALGARY, AB
Age: 30

Chase Olsen’s entrepreneurial spirit was already on display when he was in elementary school, reselling bulk candy at a mark-up to the other kids on the school bus. The stakes are much higher now, but so is Olsen’s interest in getting people what they want. 

“When I first got into real estate, I wasn’t sure what to expect,” Olsen says, “but I did know the stats weren’t good, as almost 80% of Realtors quit after only two years.” Olsen thought his young age would add to the challenges of getting started in such a make or break industry, but it has proven to be an advantage. “Looking back now, I believe my youth provided me with an edge in an industry that has been hampered by traditional ways of sales and marketing.”
